Hitting the streets of London, more specifically w10 in West London, the celebrations take place on 26-27 August. The sheer size and excitement of Carnival can be overwhelming, especially if you have your bags with you and are constantly checking to see if everything is still safely there.

Authorities recommend not to bring anything valuable with you if you’re planning on joining the street party – despite the staggering number of policemen dispatched to make the event safe,  Notting Hill Carnival is often the playground of local thieves looking for tourists and locals alike to pray on.
